Great to be a Girl


During puberty you can expect hair to appear in all sorts of new places. You’ll start growing hair under your arms and around your genitals. You might also find the hair on your legs gets longer and darker. 


Growing Up Gracefully

The teenage years can be a wonderful, exciting time. Sure, you may be faced with new challenges, but if you embrace the changes and be kind to yourself while they’re happening it will be a journey you remember forever. At Harmoni’s Kiss, we talk about how great it is to be female, the natural changes that happen when you move from being a girl to a young woman and how you can approach this stage with a positive attitude so your experience is a happy one.  


Body Changes

It’s completely natural during your teenage years to feel emotional. Although it can seem hard at the time, it’s a great idea to turn your emotions into something positive. Go for a power walk with a friend, or sign up for a team sport – great for making new friends – yoga or kickboxing class. The worst thing you can do is to let your emotions get the better of you, or take them out on someone else. Knowing what’s making you feel the way you do – and realising it’s not forever – can make you feel instantly better. 


No Sweat

Many girls find when they reach puberty they start to perspire more. This is completely natural. If you find you’re starting to sweat, make sure you shower regularly with a gentle, natural body wash and warm water, paying special attention to the underarms. Changing and washing your clothes often also helps and will also make you feel fresh and clean.  


Spot the Difference

As a teenager it’s a great idea to get into a regular skincare routine to make sure your skin looks its best throughout your life. The basis of a good skincare routine is regular cleansing. Start off by washing your face morning and night with a gentle, natural cleanser that has been formulated for young skin. 


28 Days (thereabouts)

Girls usually get their first period at around the age of 12 or 13, although it can start as young as nine and also start later in the teenage years. If you’re approaching the age when you expect to have your first period it’s a good idea to talk to someone you can trust about what you can expect. The idea is to be prepared because the more informed you are, the less of a surprise it will be when it happens.  


Body Beautiful

Every female body goes through a whole heap of different changes during the teenage years. You might have a growth spurt and get a lot taller in a short space of time. You might start to develop fuller hips. As you become a young woman you’ll also develop breasts.  


Get the Scoop

Ok, so here it is.... Basically, in September 2008 an American group called Environmental Working Group (EWG) took samples of blood and urine from 20 girls aged 14-19. The staff scientist, Rebecca Sutton Ph.D, reported that the girls samples showed traces of 16 chemicals from 4 chemical families that are commonly used in personal care products.  The four chemical families targeted were phthalates, triclosan, parabens and musks, chemicals seen today in personal care products. It was also stated that some of these chemicals are used as preservatives in food and beverages and are added to many other household products and cooking wear.  The term body burden refers to the total amount of chemicals that are present in the human body at a given point in time. We guess the study was conducted to show that what we use on a day-to-day basis can influence our level of chemical exposure.
